Woodsy Gift Ideas

In the last eZine, Rob asked for your ideas for quick gifts for that other gift-giving season: the one filled with weddings, graduations, and more. We heard a woodworking gift suggestion from a teacher who has been invited to enough graduation parties to learn the gift-giving lesson well. – Editor

“I am a high school teacher. I get invitations to graduation parties, and am expected to give gifts to the graduates. I wanted to do something different than giving money, and more lasting. I discovered cards from the Arbor Day Foundation that notify the recipient that a tree has been planted in their name in a national forest. These have been well received. They also have tree kits to give as gifts, so the recipient can plant the tree wherever they want and watch it grow. These help insure there will always be wood to work. Now, for summer break, when I won’t be spending every minute preparing lessons and grading papers, and might get to do some woodworking myself! Thanks for great magazines (I also subscribe to the hardcopy magazine)!” – Tim Frew
